    DNF color in overview screen

    I like it Clear what each entry is, and consistent with icons on map.

    DNF causes pin to move on map

    If a map pin has a sad face (DNF), then as you zoom the (offline) map in & out, the point of the pin moves around — Cachly seems to be keeping the cache centered on the hole in the top of the pin rather than the point.

    DNF color in overview screen

    I like the idea of changing the DNF to a blue dot… I realise Cachly is using traffic-light colours, but I can never remember what shade of red represents what log.

    Viewing pocket queries

    I too would appreciate a download icon instead of an arrow… that screens looks similar enough to Offline Lists that I sometimes mistakenly tap a query. Then have to wait and delete the duplicate download.

    Log preview doesn't scroll if too long

    I've needed to write a few long log entries (with line breaks) recently. If I switch to the Preview log tab, Cachly displays the middle of the log and you can't scroll up or down as expected. e.g. barefootguru log for GC4JTJX. iPhone SE.

    Map of user hides defaults to ocean

    When looking at what caches a user has hidden, the map view defaults to the middle of the North Atlantic… would be more useful if it defaulted to where the caches are :] e.g. go onto GC6JZ1R tap on Hidden by RogerW1nz tap Hides

    Map of user hides defaults to ocean

    Ah, well spotted. I have that option turned off because I can't handle the main map being zoomed and moved out of my control. But I'd expect looking at a COs subset of caches — not on the main map — would zoom and scroll automatically regardless… in the same way as first going into an offline list. Can't think of a reason not to?

    Pocket Queries to Offline list

    Hi, in V2 when selecting a Pocket Query, Cachly downloads it to an Offline list… but there's no options associated with this. When downloading (say) Bookmarks, Cachly asks about full/lite/pictures. What gets saved when saving a PQ offline?

    My hides not shown on live map

    Hi, Cachly doesn't seem to display my hides on the Live map?

    My hides not shown on live map

    Never mind, I found it… My Hides were excluded under Search Options — assumed those options only affected searching, not the live map in general.

    How to download the offline maps?

    @Starsqual the reason for this change — and simplification — is that Cachly now downloads vector-based maps rather than 'tiles'. This means an entire state or country is the same size map download as a single caching area previously. So if your caching is in a single state/country you download once and forget about it.

    Offset caches at duplicate locations

    Some COs think it's clever to have 2 multi/mystery caches at the same given coords on the map, meaning you can only see one pin. It would be handy if Cachly could offset the 2 (or more) pins if they're at the same spot on the map… maybe by rotating the pin so the pointer was still at the same location.

    Display Markdown in logs

    It's not high on my list, but would be nice to see at least **bold** & *italic* Markdown displayed as bold & italic in log entries. https://support.groundspeak.com/index.php?pg=kb.page&id=739

    No radius for letterboxes

    Cachly doesn't display the radius around letterbox caches. I can understand not displaying the radius around the original coords of mysteries, etc., but aren't letterboxes always at the given location and subject to proximity rules?

    No radius for letterboxes

    Cachly could display the radius if a letterbox has corrected coordinates then (same as mystery and multi)… does that work?

    iPad support

    Running as a native iPad app — rather than 2× mode — has been in a few threads, but creating this separate feature request so it can be voted on. Would be great if Cachly could take advantage of the large screen, including both rotations. (And eventually split screen)

    Caches confused after a find

    Saving offline didn't trigger the bug today. The other actions I regularly do are to insert the Owner Name keyword, and after submitting going back to other logs before completely backing out of the cache. I regularly switch between live caches and an offline list. Still working on finding a consistent trigger

    No radius for letterboxes

    It's not completely clear, but it sounds like having clues from the posted coords to the final is allowed… as long as you supply actual coords with the clues: https://www.geocaching.com/about/guidelines.aspx God knows how reviewers handle proximity for them. Sounds like would be misleading for Cachly to both display and not display a radius, and probably best / less wrong to leave as is.

    No radius for letterboxes

    All the letterbox caches down here are at the given coords, and from my Google (well, DuckDuckGo), that's always the case: you can go directly to the cache from the coords on geocaching.com, or from the clues provided on a letterboxing site. http://forums.groundspeak.com/GC/index.php?showtopic=153242

    Possibly related to saving the log entry offline.

    New offline map issues

    Looks good thanks Nic. Yes, it started as half cable half funicular, and is now full funicular but retained the name https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wellington_Cable_Car

    New offline map issues

    Just noticed our cable car tracks are missing (New Zealand): OSM shows them but not Cachly. This is halfway between 2 stations: S41 17.115 E174 46.109

    Open cache in Safari by default

    Hi, currently when looking at a cache and selecting ‘View on geocaching.com’, the page appears in a portal inside Cachly and it's another step to open in Safari. The reason for wanting to view on the GS site, is to get the full power of both the site and Safari. Maybe most people, or Nic, appreciate the current behaviour; but on the chance they're all silently suffering like me, thought I'd post this

    Caches confused after a find

    I work around it by randomly tapping on 1 or 2 other caches, then it'll fix the incorrect one.

    New offline map issues

    Ooh, that's nice, it makes walking tracks really pop. Might be worth making play areas more green than aqua, as blue implies water — see screenshot with lake on left and play area on right. I'd like to see contour lines, but realise that could make the map too busy.
